MELBOURNE, Fla., Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kona Gold Beverage, Inc. (OTCQB: KGKG), a holding company focused on product development in the better-for-you and hemp and CBD functional beverage sector, is pleased to announce revenue in October was the highest when compared to all prior Octobers, and the Company's third best revenue month of 2021. The months of October, November, and December are generally the slowest months in the beverage industry, but Kona Gold Beverage's subsidiaries, Kona Gold LLC and Gold Leaf Distribution LLC continue to see phenomenal growth, even in the slower season.
Kona Gold LLC saw October revenues of approximately $151,000 with approximately $32,000 in Gross Profit. Gold Leaf Distribution LLC saw October revenues of approximately $176,000 with approximately $48,000 in Gross Profit, which was another record revenue month for Gold Leaf Distribution. The combined Kona Gold Beverage subsidiaries saw approximately $327,000 in combined revenue.
Kona Gold Beverage's announcement comes off last month's announcement of having a record revenue quarter in Q3, with approximately $890,000 in revenue. At the current pace, Kona Gold Beverage's Q4 revenues are on track to beat the previous quarters revenue, which would be a staple on the strong year the Company is having in 2021. The Company continues to be on pace to hit 2021 projected revenues of $2.5 to $3 million in revenue.
"I am pleased to announce to our shareholders that the Company continues to see exciting growth and our revenues are a reflection of that," stated Robert Clark, CEO of Kona Gold Beverage, Inc. "I understand our shareholders are frustrated with the beating our stock price has taken recently, but that is not a reflection of the outstanding work our entire team is doing and the growth we are experiencing from a business perspective. We continue to hit our numbers we put out for 2021 and are ramping up for an extremely exciting 2022 with new product launches, rebranding of existing products, and expanding distribution operations."
Clark continued, "To support the growth we are having, we recently hired a bookkeeper at our corporate location and 2 salesmen for our Gold Leaf Distribution operation. We started 2021 with 9 employees across all subsidiaries and we have grown to 18 employees to date."
Kona Gold will be announcing an exciting new product line that will launch in the next few weeks along with rebranding updates of its Kona Gold Hemp Energy Drinks. Gold Leaf Distribution's new Conway branch is now fully operational and the Company expects a substantial uptick in revenue from that location, adding to the phenomenal growth Gold Leaf is having in 2021.For more information regarding Kona Gold Beverage, please visit: https://konagoldbeverage.com/
